At Surrey, you’ll start preparing for your future from your first day on campus and will be given endless opportunities to boost your employability, from experiencing life in another country to getting hands-on experience in a professional environment. Our track record for graduate employability is one of the best in the UK, with 96 per cent of our undergraduates and 97 per cent of our postgraduates in employment (or further study) within 15 months of graduating (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020).

Caring Campus

At Surrey, we do everything we can to make you feel safe, settled and happy during your time at university. Our campus is like a home away from home and you’ll quickly become part of our close-knit campus community. Our staff always put our students first. No matter what you need, there’s someone at Surrey who can help. We have a dedicated student advice and support hub at the MySurrey Hive, friendly International Student Support teams, and students on placement have access to support and mentoring from their academic staff.

From September 2020, we’ll be providing all of our undergraduates and postgraduate taught students with free digital copies of their essential textbooks. This is part of our commitment to making university more accessible, enabling you to learn in a more digital environment.

  • Introduction to Qualitative Interviewing: Qualitative in-depth interviews are a much used and useful research tool in academic and applied social research. This one-day course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing. The course is designed primarily for researchers with minimal or no experience of qualitative interviewing. However the course may also be useful for more experienced researchers who have had little formal training or who wish to reflect on their practice. The day includes sessions exploring the characteristics of qualitative research, how to prepare for an interview, tips on how to conduct interviews effectively and the development of discussion guides for interviews. The teaching sessions are interspersed with practical exercises exploring different types of interaction that might occur during an interview and various aspects of interviewing practice. Participants will be given the opportunity to carry out a practice interview, experience being interviewed and observe interviewing taking place. We will explore a variety of ethical and other issues as these arise in discussion.
